GGFU Supports Fundraising at the McDonald's LPGA Championship
For the second straight year, Chesapeake & Atlantic Synthetic Turf Solutions (CASTS), the Golf Greens "Fore" U (GGFU) licensee in the Maryland-Delaware area, has supported the fundraising and charitable efforts of the First Tee of Harford County, the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Programs, and the Ronald McDonald House Charities at the McDonald's LPGA Championship.
The green was first installed in 2007 at the Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre de Grace, Maryland, by Jake McCuen's installation team. It was refreshed this year to present a slightly different image for those returning spectators. Jake says that over the last two years several of the Pros have commented on how true and smooth the putts run on our synthetic putting surface.
The management staff at Bulle Rock and the McDonald's LPGA have allowed this green to remain in place at the entrance to the Bulle Rock Golf Course. This Pete Dye-designed layout has twice being awarded a 5-star ranking by Golf Digest's Best Places to Play and is considered one of the Top 100 Public Courses in the Nation, at one time being ranked 12th. The Bulle Rock Grounds Crew takes pride in maintaining the landscape surrounding the synthetic green along with this magnificent golf facility.
The green will remain at Bulle Rock through the 2009 McDonald's LPGA Championship, the final year of the event. If you would like additional information about this green, the First Tee Program or the McDonald's LPGA Championship please contact:
